Newest Review: ... we were asked if they would like the chefs to start cooking our main courses!!!!!!This was somewhat surprising having waited so long in the first place We were finally served at 9.50pm after making several enquiries!!!!!! We had actually considered leaving and going for fish and chips we were so hungry but waited it out to be courteous. The blue steaks were overcooked and tough, the portions ... more

My family and visited in mid August for a joint birthday and anniversary celebration, party of 8. We had three generations in our party including my pregnant daughter and my parents in their 80's. We booked a table for 7.30 and we waited.......and waited......... When our menus finally arrived we were told of the dishes that were not available! Having taken the starter orders, we waited again.........The starters included prawn cocktails which were good but we had waited so long we were ravenous. Two in the party did not order starters so it was a very long wait for them to eat anything - over 2 hours!!!!!! When the starters dishes were collected we were ... Read the complete review

What a disappointment. The service was awful. Our order was wrong and when the food did arrive the presentation and addition of 'raw' cold broccoli as part of a chicken coronation salad (huge leaves with a ball of orange chicken) well it was laughable. The server was more interested in her mobile and chatting to bar staff. The only tip given was - shut up shop - you're not worth it.

We were so looking forward to the eveing however the food was awful.Warm. very warm prawns were served for a start followed by cold fillet this was caused by the very cold pate which sat under the meat. The explannation to us by the kitchen for the prawns was, 'they had sat under a hot lamp',OMG how dangerous is that practice?What really got our beef (excuse the pun) was that the manager was to busy to see us. A total lack of customer care, we shall never return. The food was of a really poor standard.P.s dont order any shell fish!

This is a very nice pub with quite a large selection of pumps. The service was excellent. If you sense an "however" then you would sense right.... However, they don't appear to know how to cater for vegetarians which in this day and age is a bit poor. On the menu there is not a single item marked as suitable for vegetarians. Two items seem possibly suitable but one had said it used pesto which is not normally a vegetarian ingredient as it normally (not always) contains parmesan cheese. Fortunately the website had claimed this dish was aimed at vegetarians. Unfortunately, when it arrived it was little more than a snack. I'm not a big eater but I'd polished it ...

The Kings Arms is a small but very cosy village pub located in Cardington, close to Bedford and St Neots and home of the two famous Cardington hangers where the Batman films are now recorded. They specialise in freshly cooked food and have recently undergone a change of Management, who have really turned the place around. They are open everyday (11 t o11 Mon-Sat and 11 to 10:30 Sun) and food is served everyday after midday. Me and my partner recently visited there for a run of the meal dinner, we had visited the pub previously but only for a few drinks, never for a meal, before the new management took over it was never really much of a restaurant, more of a ...
